1 SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator


1.1 Radioserver
To set up the radioserver, click Radioserver in the left list of the SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator window. At

that, the settings window will display on the right.

Name – radioserver alias. You cannot type more than 20 characters into this field.

Interface and Port – radioserver IP address, i.e. the IP address of the PC where the radioserver is installed.

Default port is 8888.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 6

Note: If the specified port is occupied, you will see a warning icon next to the input field. Hover the mouse over

the icon to see where the port is being used.

Authentication – authentication parameters required for connection to the radioserver.

No – anonymous authentication.

Windows – Windows authentication. To connect, the dispatcher must use the user name and password of the

account where the radioserver service was started.

VoIP Listen Port – number of a UDP port for receiving voice data from the dispatcher.

Block Options – allows selecting the way how to block a radio. When Kill Radio is applied, radioserver sends Kill

Radio command to block the radio. The Deny Channel option denies the subscriber radio to work on the given

channel.

Note: The Deny Channel option is applicable only to IP Site Connect (direct IP connection) or NAI based

configurations.

Note: When the Block Radio command is sent from one radio unit to another, the radio will be blocked, even if

Deny Channel is selected.

Language – allows selecting languages of the user interface of the SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator

application.

Process Priority – allows selecting the priority that the system associates with a process. By setting this

parameter you can speed up or slow down SmartPTT performance. The highest possible priority is Real Time.

Use it wisely! It may cause malfunctioning of the whole system. We recommend to use the Normal priority.

You can save changes made by clicking Save . If you want to cancel changes made, click Restore .

All the changes made after the last save will be restored. To exit SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, click Close

. To view help, click Help .

The radioserver is implemented as Windows service SmartPTT Radio Service. To enable saved changes you must

restart the service. Service is managed using the following buttons: Start, Stop and Restart , .

How to Set up the Redundant Server


The redundant server can be useful in case of the primary server breakdown. Switching between the servers is

made automatically.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 7

To set up the redundant server correctly follow the steps enumerated below:

1. Take two radioservers and define their roles: Redundant or Primary. In the settings of the redundant

server enter the IP address of the primary radioserver. A primary server can be backed up only with one

redundant server.

2. Fill in the fields Primary Server Address (host:port) and Connection Timeout.

Connection Timeout, sec – time interval that starts ticking as soon as the primary server is down. If the

primary server has not recovered within the specified time interval, the redundant server takes over. The least

possible value is 20 seconds.

Note: The Primary Server Address (host:port) and Connection Timeout fields are unavailable if the role

of the server is set to Primary.

3. Make sure that both radioservers are up and running.

4. Add both radioservers into the dispatch console (Settings > Radioservers). Make them both active.

5. Check that you can see both radioservers online in the Radio Fleet panel.

How to Limit the Number of Radios


The Limit Radios to Service area was designed to manage the number of radios allowed in the network. Here

the user can specify which radios are to be controlled by the system and which are not.

To make this functionality active select Enabled. Then, in the Allowed Radio Numbers field, enter ID's of the

radios which are to be controlled by the system.

Warning! All the radios whose ID's were not specified will be ignored by SmartPTT system.

1.1.1 Licenses
To use the SmartPTT application you need to install licenses. There are licenses for basic features, which allow

you to run the application, and licenses for additional features, like telephone connection support, bridging, SNMP

service, etc.

To install server licenses, select Licenses section in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. At that, the following

window opens.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 8

Click Change License – the browse window is displayed. Specify location of the license file and click Open.

The Licenses window appears, which displays information on the license type and functionality. Click Change

License to install the license.

The license is installed, and the window displays information on the license type.

License – title of the license.

Quantity – allowed number of computers where the service can be installed or the number of repeater

connections.

Date – license expiration date.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 9

Licenses can be tied to the hardware ID. You can generate it in the Activation area by clicking Collect.

When the subscription expiration date is getting close, the system notifies the user about it.

1.1.2 Services
ARS

ARS or registration service provides information on the availability of radio subscribers in the radio network.

To set up the registration service parameters, click ARS in the list in the left area of the SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator window. At that, a new window appears on the right.

To enable the service select the Active check box.

Radio Inactivity Timeout, s – time period, after which the radio that did not display any activity becomes

potentially absent. In this case the system includes this radio into a special presence check process.

Note: Radio activity includes the following events: GPS location, telemetry signal, text message or voice call.

Generally, a radio can be sent 5 presence check requests successively with a 30-second interval. This parameter

is called Individual Minimum Check Interval and equals 30s; it can't be changed in SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator. This parameter sets the interval between presence check requests sent to one radio. Therefore, it

can be increased depending on the number of radios to check. If the radio does not respond to the presence

check requests and does not display any activity, it will acquire the Offline status after the 5th unsuccessful

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 10

presence check request.

Global Minimum Request Interval, ms – sets the minimum interval between presence check requests sent to

all inactive radios in all networks. Instead of sending presence check requests to all inactive radios at one time,

the system puts them on a queue and sends one presence check request to one radio at a time with the interval

set in the Global Minimum Request Interval field. This method allows us to eliminate the risk of sending too

many presence check requests at one time, thus removing traffic overload on the channel and spreading network

load evenly.

Example

There are three radios active till 10:00:00 and 10:00:02 (see pic. below). Then, for the following 600s they do not

display any activity. So, the radio activity timeout for Radios 1 and 2 runs out at 10:10:00 and for Radio 3 at

10:10:02. When it happens, the system creates a pool of inactive radios. The system puts the radios on a queue

and starts sending presence check requests with the interval set in the Global Minimum Request Interval field.

Radio 2 responds to the presence check request and is no longer regarded as potentially offline. Radios 1 and 3

do not respond to the presence check request and do not display any activity, so the system sends another

request in 30s to each radio. After the 5th presence check request, the radios get the Offline status.

Use Radio Check – this setting defines the mechanism used for checking radio subscriber presence in the

network. If selected, the system uses the command Radio Check. This option was implemented for radios that do

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 11

not support ARS.

GPS

GPS or location service provides coordinates of radio subscribers with a GPS receiver so you can determine their

current location.

To set up location service parameters, click GPS in the list in the left area of the SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator window. At that, the following window opens.

If necessary, location service can be unavailable. To do this, clear the Active check box.

Minimum Request Interval, s – the minimum interval between GPS requests sent to the radios within one

network. The requests can be sent automatically or initiated by the dispatcher. This method allows us to eliminate

the risk of sending too many GPS requests at one time, thus removing traffic overload on the channel and

spreading network load evenly.

Radio Inactivity Timeout, s – time period, after which the radio that did not send GPS becomes potentially

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 12

absent. In this case the radio receives a location update request.

system includes this radio into a special presence check process.

The list Get Subscriber Location for Following Groups allows you to specify location update time interval per

subscriber group added in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator under Subscriber Groups.

If Allow Dispatchers to Amend Location Update Time Interval is selected, dispatchers can reduce the

location update time interval configured in the table above. However, if the time interval specified by the dispatcher

is less than Minimum location update interval, the new value set by the dispatcher will be ignored, and

subscriber location will be updated within Minimum location update interval. If Allow Dispatchers to Amend

Location Update Time Interval is not selected, dispatchers won’t be able to change the time interval for

location update, and location will be updated within the time interval set in the table per each group.

Warning! If "Allow Dispatchers to Amend Location Update Time Interval" is not selected and there are

no subscriber groups in the table, the dispatcher won't receive any subscriber location data.

TMS

TMS or text messaging service is used to exchange text messages between radio subscribers and SmartPTT

Dispatcher. To set up the messaging service parameters, click TMS in the setting tree of the SmartPTT

Radioserver Configurator window. At that, a window opens. To enable the messaging service, select the Active

check box.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 13

Telemetry

The telemetry service is used for transmission and processing of telemetry signals between SmartPTT Dispatcher

and radio subscribers. To set up the telemetry service parameters, click Telemetry in the list in the left area of

the SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator window. At that, the following window is displayed on the right. To enable

the telemetry service, select the Active check box.

Subscriber Blacklist

Subscriber blacklist allows managing the number of available radio subscribers and operators in the network.

To create a blacklist, first it is necessary to create subscriber groups. We will need these to form a blacklist.

To add a subscriber group, click Subscriber Groups in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. At

that, the Subscriber Groups window opens on the right.

Group Name – any name of a subscriber group.

Subscribers – the list of radio IDs that are to be included in the created group.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 14

To configure blacklist parameters, click Subscriber Blacklist in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator. At that, the following window opens.

Enable subscriber blacklist service by ticking off the Active check box.

Note: Subscriber Blacklist allows not only blocking certain radios, but also creating the so-called "whitelist" of

radios that are allowed in the radio network. In the latter case all other radios, that is not included in the whitelist,

will be blocked.

To block certain groups of subscribers, choose Deny and select groups that are not permitted to communicate in

MOTOTRBO network.

To allow certain groups of subscribers to communicate in MOTOTRBO network, that is to create a whitelist,

select Allow and mark those groups that will be available in radio network when all other radios are blocked.

Blocking Retry Interval, sec – sets a minimum time period for sending a command to block the radio added in

the blacklist.

Blocking Retries – number of retries to send the Block command to the radio before confirmation comes.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 15

To save changes, click Save and then restart SmartPTT Radioserver .

If a radio is in the blacklist and MOTORBO control station is used (MOTOTRBO control station, Capacity Plus

system), then the radio will be completely unavailable. When the radio is unavailable, some actions are still

available: Monitoring, Radio Check and Radio Unblocking. The dispatcher can remove the block from the radio

by sending the "Unblock" command. To enable the radio without dispatcher's help, just read the codeplug of the

radio in MOTOTRBO Customer Programming Software (called MOTOTRBO CPS) and then write the settings to

the codeplug.

To be able to process the Radio Disable command, the radio must have the Radio Disable Decode parameter

selected in the codeplug. You can find it in MOTOTRBO CPS, in the Signaling Systems section. If Radio

Disable Decode is not selected, the radio can't be blocked even if it is in the blacklist.

When direct IP connection is used (for example, IP Site Connect) in MOTOTRBO network, radio blocking allows

to block the channel only. At that, "Channel Denied" is displayed on the radio screen. The radio can change the

channel and resume its operation. To enable the blocked channel, the dispatcher should send the "Unblock"

command to the radio. To enable the radio without dispatcher's help, delete the blocked channel and create the

channel equal to the deleted one.

SMS Gateway

SmartPTT Radioserver has an integrated SMS Gateway service, which allows establishing communication

between radios and mobile phones There are 2 possible ways to communicate between each other:

1. A radio subscriber sends an SMS to a phone subscriber.

2. A phone subscriber sends an SMS to a radio subscriber.

To be able to send an SMS, it is necessary to do preliminary settings on both modem and SmartPTT Radioserver.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 24

Configuring SmartPTT Radioserver and incoming messages


Select the SMS Gateway item in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator.

Active – select to enable SMS Gateway service.

Allow SMS delivery from radios – select this option if you need to forward SMS directly from subscriber radios.

Allow SMS delivery to radios – select this option if you need to forward SMS directly to subscriber radios.

Split Long Messages – if selected, a long message, i.e. a message that contains more characters than allowed

in one message in the radio network sent to a radio, will be split into several messages. If not selected, a long

message addressed to a radio is trimmed to not exceed the limit (some information will be lost).

Sender ID – if selected, the radio subscriber will see the phone number of the sender with the received SMS.

Configuring a modem and outgoing messages

Warning! To enable modem settings, stop SmartPTT Radioserver.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 25

Port Name – COM port number which modem is connected to. You can find the COM port number by

opening modem properties in Windows Control Panel.

Speed – data flow rate through COM port (in bits/sec).

Data Bits – number of data bits to transmit.

You can configure Data Bits to be 5, 6, 7, or 8. Data is transmitted as a series of five, six, seven, or eight bits (five

and six bit data formats are used rarely for specialized communications equipment).

Stop Bits – number of bits used to indicate the end of a byte. You can configure Stop Bits to be 1, 1.5, or 2. If

Stop Bits is 1.5, the stop bit is transferred for 150% of the normal time used to transfer one bit.

Both the computer and the peripheral device must be configured to transmit the same number of stop bits.

Parity – method of detecting errors in transmission.

You can configure Parity to be None, Odd or Even.

If Parity is None, parity checking is not performed and the parity bit is not transmitted.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 26

If Parity is Odd, the number of mark bits in the data is counted, and the parity bit is asserted or unasserted to

obtain an odd number of mark bits.

If Parity is Even, the number of mark bits in the data is counted, and the parity bit is asserted or unasserted to

obtain an even number of mark bits.

Read Timeout – number of milliseconds before a time-out occurs when a read operation does not finish.

Write Timeout – number of milliseconds before a time-out occurs when a write operation does not finish.

Check Modem – modem operation test. If a modem is detected, you will see information regarding the type of

modem installed on your system. If there is no modem detected, you will see "Modem not found" message.

The next step is to check settings for outgoing messages and to send a test message.

Use Text mode – allows selecting Text or PDU mode for SMS sending.

There are two ways of sending and receiving SMS messages: in text mode (the check box selected) and in the

protocol description unit (PDU) mode (the check box is not selected). The text mode (unavailable on some

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 27

phones) is just an encoding of the bit stream represented by the PDU mode, and can be used only for English;

PDU mode and Unicode are used for all languages. Unicode is the universal character encoding which provides

the basis for the consistent encoding, representation and handling of text expressed in most of the world's writing

systems.

SMS Center for outgoing messages – SMS message center number. If the number is registered on modem’s

SIM-card, there is no need to fill this field.

Running tests on SMS sending


Make sure SMS messages can be sent to recipients from SmartPTT Radioserver. Use Test Settings to do it.

First, in the field Phone Number specify the phone number where you will send the test message.

Second, enter the text of the message in the field Message. And then click Send.

If the message is successfully sent, you will get a confirmation notification.

When modem is selected and test message is successfully sent, save the changes and restart the

radioserver . After the radioserver is restarted, Check modem and Send (test message) will be

unavailable. It will mean that now you are ready to send SMS messages from the radio and to the radio.

To send an SMS from the mobile phone to the radio, the message forwarded to the modem number should

comply with one of the following formats.

: – prefix indicating that this message is addressed to a radio subscriber or talkgroup.

<Radio/Talkgroup IP> – radio or talkgroup IP address of the recipient

<Radio ID> – radio ID of the recipient

Space indicates the beginning of the message body.

Use the Split Long Messages option to guarantee that a message won't be cut.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 28

Example:

When the radioserver gets the following message, it sends the message to subscriber 77 (or to talkgroup ID=2):

To subscriber 77:

:12.0.0.77 SMS text

:77 SMS text

To talkgroup 2:

:225.0.0.2 SMS text

To multiple subscribers simultaneously:

:12.0.0.80,12.0.0.81,12.0.0.82,12.0.0.50 SMS text

:9080,9081,9082,9050 SMS text

Note: When only ID is specified (with no IP address of the radio or talkgroup), SMS can be sent only to the

subscriber with the specified ID. To send a group SMS, it is necessary to use a full talkgroup IP address.

To send an SMS from a radio to a mobile phone, the message should comply with the following format.

: – prefix indicating that this message is addressed to a mobile phone.

&phone number – mobile phone number of the SMS recipient (symbol "&" is used instead of "+" because there

is no "+" symbol on the MOTOTRBO radios).

Space indicates the beginning of the message body.

Example:

On receiving the message :&71234567890 SMS text, the radioserver sends it to the mobile radio with the phone

number +71234567890.

To several mobile subscribers simultaneously:

:&71234567890,&71234567890 SMS text

File Receive

File Receive service is an easy and useful tool, which allows sending files for almost all MOTOTRBO radios. This

function is even more necessary in field communication characterized by the absence of the Internet connection

and other channels to transmit data.

In version 2.0 SmartPTT File Transfer allows receiving files without the server application or base stations. The

user needs to have only a radio connected to the PC via USB port and the client application SmartPTT File

Transfer version 2.0.

Note: Not all networks support the new scheme of file transfer. It is possible for IP Site Connect only. For other

network types use the old file transfer method, that is using control stations and server application SmartPTT File

Transfer version 1.0 or 2.0.

To enable this functionality the following steps should be taken:

1. Configure SmartPTT Radioserver settings.

2. Configure the radio with the help of MOTOTRBO CPS.

3. Configure routing settings for file transfer on a remote computer.

4. Configure the client application SmartPTT File Transfer 2.0.

How to Configure SmartPTT Radioserver


To configure the settings, select the File Receive menu item in the left setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator. At that, the File Receive Service window opens on the right.

Active – enables the service.

Port – port used by file receive service.

Received File Folder – field to specify the folder name where received files are to be stored.

To apply the changes, save the new settings and restart the radioserver.

How to Configure Radio Settings in MOTOTRBO CPS


For the best file transfer rate a radio should be configured in the following way:

1. Open MOTOTRBO CPS and go to General Settings and configure the TX Preamble Duration
parameter to be 60 ms.

2. Go to Network and configure the Max TX PDU Size parameter to be 500 byte.

3. Clear Data Call Confirmed for the channel where the files are to be transmitted.

How to Configure Routing Settings for File Transmission


To configure file transmission correctly, add information on the new route for file transmission in the routing table

of the PC to which a radio is connected.

The routing table is configured via Windows command line. To open the command line, run file C:\\WINDOWS

\system32\cmd.exe.

To add the file transmission route, use Windows command line:

route –p add 13.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0 192.168.Х.Х, where:

route is a command to add a route;

–p – the key for adding a route into the list of fixed routes;

add – adding the route;

13.0.0.0 – IP address of all radios available in the radio network;

mask 255.0.0.0 – network mask;

192.168.Х.Х – radio IP address.

Radioserver 31

Example:

To transmit data packets from the radio with IP address 192.168.10.1 (radio IP address can be found in the

MOTOTRBO CPS application, Network menu item), the following command needs to be entered:

route –p add 13.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0 192.168.10.1

1.1.3 Add-on Modules


Tallysman

SmartPTT provides a more efficient radio monitoring that works in the Lone Worker mode. The option is

compatible with MOTOTRBO DM/DP 3000 and 4000 series radios.

SmartPTT ensures the following features for the generic option board with the Tallysman SpriteTM TW251 firmware:

Mandown, i.e. activating the alarm signal if the radio position (its tilt) no longer corresponds to the

parameters set for the option board in Tallysman Sprite Configurator.

Heartbeat messages. Messages that provide information about subscriber presence in the radio network. If

message delivery failed, SmartPTT Dispatcher is notified about the radio unavailability. The radio is also

informed about radioserver unavailability (e.g., when the channel is busy).

Example of the option board configuration:

When the radio tilt changes, a signal is played on the radio. The signal stops after the radio is returned to its

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 35

normal position. If not, an emergency alarm is sent to SmartPTT Radioserver. The emergency alarm LED on the

radio can be turned off by a long press on the emergency alarm button (depends on the radio MOTOTRBO CPS

settings).

For proper operation of the radios with the built-in option board with the Tallysman SpriteTM TW251 firmware, do

the following radio settings in MOTOTRBO CPS:

enable option board on the selected channel by selecting the Option Board check box;

enable the Emergency Alarm Indication option and select digital signaling system from the list in the

Emergency System field. To set up a signaling system, go to Signaling Systems > Digital Emergency

item.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 36

To enable Tallysman, click Tallysman in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator and select the

Active check box.

Heartbeat Message Port – UDP port to receive messages about the radio presence in the network. This value

must match Host UDP Port in the option board configurator (the Heartbeat item, the SmartPTT GOB Configurator

application). Use the default value of 5000.

Response Delay, sec – the time period that passes before SmartPTT Radioserver sends heartbeat message

confirmation to the radio. Set the value taking into consideration the network load. Otherwise, if the radio does not

receive acknowledgment, the radio gets a signal about radioserver unavailability.

Indoor Tracking

Big organizations with huge premises require constant control over their employees' displacement inside

buildings. For this purpose Indoor Tracking system was implemented. Indoor Tracking system allows getting data

from special beacons and transmitting it to SmartPTT Dispatcher or any other client application using API.

Contact our technical support (http://support.smartptt.com/hc/en-us) for SmartPTT Client API documentation.

Currently, SmartPTT system supports the following technologies and products:

iBeacon technology: with the use of MOTOTRBO radios with the firmware version 2.6 and above and the

beacons that support iBeacon technology,

Blufi option boards (RF800) with special beacons (Connect-RTLS RF800), and

Kilchherr option boards (K-TERM 44) with special beacons (K-TERM 70IC Beacon Transmitter).

Note: Indoor Tracking functionality requires the corresponding license. Connect Plus systems support Indoor

Tracking based on the iBeacon technology only.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 37

The following scheme shows how SmartPTT Radioserver gets subscriber location data.

iBeacon-based technology scheme: Each beacon installed is transmitting at an interval ranging from a fraction of

a second to some minutes the data packages of the following format: iBeacon prefix—the title of the package,

UUID—the unique identifier of the beacon, Major—the group parameter of the beacon, Minor—the individual

parameter of the beacon in the group, Tx power—the strength of the signal, transmitting by the beacon. The radio

with the preconfigured CPS settings (see below) receives the data packages from the beacons, which identifiers

(UUID) are set in the CPS settings, and transmits them to SmartPTT Radioserver via repeater or control station.

Blufi scheme: The RF800 beacons operate in a continual Sleep -> Transmit -> Sleep -> Transmit mode. When the

beacon awakes from its sleep cycle, it transmits its allocated code for the duration of the transmit phase and then

returns to its sleep phase. The portable radios function in a similar fashion except they follow a Sleep -> Listen ->

Sleep -> Listen mode. When a portable radio awakes from its sleep cycle, it listens for any transmitted beacon

codes for the duration of its listen phase and then determines the current active beacon. If the new active beacon

is different from the previous active beacon, a beacon update status message (a special TMS message) is sent

via the radio network to SmartPTT Radioserver. For more information on Blufi beacons and option boards see the

manufacturer's documentation on the products.

Note: Connect-RTLS RF800 option boards transmit data in special TMS messages, therefore it is necessary to

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 38

have TMS enabled.

Kilchherr sheme: Each beacon installed is continually transmitting commands, like Detect, Keep Alive, Lost,

which contain unique Beacon ID, set in K-Term CPS. When a radio gets closer to the beacon, the built-in option

board receives Beacon ID and then transmits it with the Radio ID to SmartPTT Radioserver via repeater or control

station. Further data processing can be handled by SmartPTT Dispatcher or any third party application, connected

to the radioserver using API. For more information on Kilchherr beacons and option boards see the manufacturer's

documentation on the products.

Warning! For the Kilchherr and BluFi option boards, in network systems with MNIS service enabled,

make sure that the ID set in the option board settings (where data is to be sent) should match "MNIS

Application ID". In network systems without MNIS service enabled, any ID can be set in the option board

settings (where data is to be sent), however, it is necessary that "Data call confirmed" should be

unselected in the radio settings. In networks based on control stations it is necessary that the ID set in

the option board settings should match "Radio ID" set in the control station settings.

To use the Indoor Tracking feature based on the iBeacon technology, ensure that the MOTOTRBO radio meets

the following requirements:

the radio has the firmware version 2.6 and above,

the radio supports Indoor-positioning, and

the radio is configured properly in MOTOTRBO CPS.

To configure the MOTOTRBO radio for use of the Indoor Tracking feature based on the iBeacon technology, do

the following:

1. Launch MOTOTRBO CPS with the 13.0 version or above and make the following settings:

Note: Below is a description of the Indoor settings only. The complete information on how to program the

MOTOTRBO equipment step by step, see here.

Minimum RSSI level: The minimum strength of the signal, that radio receives from the beacon. SmartPTT

Radioserver will not process the signals with the strength that is lower than the specified level (applicable to

iBeacon technology only).

Set list of allowed beacons: You can specify the numbers of the beacons which data must be processed by

SmartPTT Radioserver. If the option is not selected, the radioserver processes data from all the beacons. If you

use Motorola source, specify the numbers of the beacons in the Major.Minor format, where the Major value is

separated from the Minor value by a dot. Major stands for the group number of the beacons, Minor stands for the

individual number of the beacon in the group. For the BluFi or Kilchherr source, specify the Beacon IDs.

Event Log

The Event Log is a special SmartPTT Radioserver log. It tracks all events from all dispatch systems connected to

the radioserver. Events are registered in the event log even if SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator is closed.

telephone subscriber can hear the ring tone until the radio subscriber has pressed the PTT button. If these check

boxes are not selected, the call will start immediately.

Radio ring timeout – sets the time interval during which the radioserver waits for the radio subscriber to press

the PTT button.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 51

Phone ring timeout – sets the time interval during which the radioserver waits for the telephone subscriber to

pick up the phone.

Phone call idle session timeout — sets the time interval starting from the last time the radio subscriber

presses the PTT button after which the telephone call will be automatically finished. This timeout must not

exceed TX Time-Out Timer set in network settings in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator and in repeater

settings.

Conference call idle session timeout – sets the time interval starting from the last time the conference call

participant presses PTT button after which the conference call will be automatically finished.

Radio subscribers' notifications – sets notifications of radio subscribers of various events with a special tone:

telephone calls, beginning and end of calls. The radio subscriber can also receive messages about errors.

Sound Volume Settings – allows setting up sound volumes on a telephone and a radio during incoming or

outgoing radio calls.

Telephone Interconnect

Telephone Interconnect service allows for communication between radio and telephone subscribers, and uses SIP

and RTP protocols for signaling and voice data transmission. Voice data transmission is done in half-duplex

mode. Switching between receiving and transmitting modes is carried out by voice interrupt initiated by a radio

subscriber. There are several ways how to make the interconnection:

A telephone subscriber makes a private call.

A telephone subscriber makes a group call.

A radio subscriber makes a call to a telephone subscriber.

The dispatcher connects telephone and radio subscribers.

The dispatcher connects a telephone subscriber and a talkgroup.


To use Telephone Interconnect service, configure the radioserver and VoIP gateway settings. Also, make sure

that Allow Telephone Interconnect is enabled in the network slot parameters.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide

Configuring SmartPTT Radioserver


To configure SmartPTT Radioserver settings, go to SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator and select Telephone

Interconnect as shown on the picture.

Warning! To activate Telephone Interconnect, install the corresponding license. The license can be

installed under Licenses.

Under Radioserver Settings specify the interface that will be used for sending and receiving commands and

voice data when working with VoIP gateway.

SIP port – UDP or TCP port number to receive and send SIP data packets. The default value is 5060.

Accordingly, the specified port must be available for incoming and outgoing traffic.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 53

Warning! If both SmartPTT Dispatcher and SmartPTT Radioserver are installed on one computer, their

SIP ports must differ. For example, 5060 for the radioserver and 5061 for the dispatch console.

RTP ports – each connection with a phone subscriber occupies two UDP ports (even port numbers are used by

RTP protocol, and odd port numbers—by RTCP protocol). The specified port must be available for incoming and

outgoing traffic. The default range of values is from 18650 to 18660.

Warning! The address and the port of the VoIP gateway must be real (NAT is not supported). If both

SmartPTT Dispatcher and SmartPTT Radioserver are installed on one computer, the port ranges set in

and the RTP ports fields in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator and SmartPTT Dispatcher must differ.

Transport – allows selecting between TCP and UPD for SIP commands transmit.

In the Codec Settings tab you can enable or disable supported audio codecs, as well as change their priorities.

Currently, there are 4 audio codecs: G711A, G711Q, SPEEX и G729. When connecting to PBX the radioserver

always uses the codec priorities list set in the PBX settings, while the PBX can ignore the priorities list set in the

radioserver. That is why codecs used by the call initiator and the responder can be different.

Permissions for Subscriber Groups – in this section you can allow or forbid particular groups of radio

subscribers to make or answer telephone calls. These groups of subscribers can be created under Subscriber

Groups. If the Active check box is selected, and the table is empty, communication between radio and phone

subscribers will be impossible.

Incoming Calls
In terms of SmartPTT system "incoming calls" are calls that are made from telephone subscribers to radio

subscribers.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 54

A telephone subscriber can make two types of calls to radio subscribers.

1. Private call is a call when the radioserver calls to a radio subscriber. You can use Private call mask

when making a private call.

2. Group call is a call when the radioserver calls to a talkgroup. You can use Group call mask to make a

group call.

A mask is a regular expression. In the following table you can find all the symbols used in masks.

Symbols Description

. Used for any figure

[m-n] Used for any figure in the interval from m to n

[a,b,c] or [abc] Used for any figure from the list

T Used for any number of any figures

() Used to unite regular expressions

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 55

{} Used to include everything inside the brackets into the resulting number.

N Used to denote network ID. N=0 when there is only one network. Can be used
only in Group Call Mask.
S Used to denote Slot ID (IP Site Connect) or Site ID (Linked Capacity Plus).
Can be used only in Group Call Mask.

Example:

Let's review sample masks:

Private Call Mask: 31 or 31T

Group Call Mask: 32NSST

Then the dialed numbers will mean the following:

31403, i.e. 31 403: private call to subscriber with ID=403.

3200013, i.e. 32 0 00 13: wide group call to a talkgroup 13, which must be either unique for the radioserver, or

located in the only network connected to the radioserver.

3210013, i.e. 32 1 00 13: wide group call to a talkgroup 13 located in network 1.

32112123, i.e. 32 1 12 123: local group call to a talkgroup 123 in network 1, on site 12.

The S symbol can be assigned different values and they depend on the network type. Below is the list of values

that can be used for the S symbol:

In the IP Site Connect network the S symbol can be assigned values 1 or 2 only, which correspond to the

number of the IP Site Connect slot.

In the Capacity Plus network the S symbol can have only one value: 0.

In the Linked Capacity Plus network the S symbol can be assigned any value. S=0 stands for a wide group

call. S=1, S=2, S=any other figure stand for a local group call specifying the LCP site number.

To make the All Call, use the following values:

In the IP Site Connect network: S=1/2 and talkgroup ID=0.

In the Capacity Plus and Linked Capacity Plus networks: S=0 and talkgroup ID=0.

Incoming Calls Authentication – receiving an incoming call from a phone/softphone, the radioserver asks for the

username and password corresponding to Realm in the described setting. The calling telephone subscriber must

send back the username and password specified in this setting. To activate this ability, select Enabled.

Realm – parameter used for the incoming telephone calls authentication.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 56

Username – username used for authentication.

Password – password used for authentication. It should correspond to the specified realm.

Voice Menu Settings is used for setting up interactive voice response (IVR), i.e., a technology that allows

SmartPTT system to interact with subscribers through the use of voice and DTMF tones input via keypad. If

enabled and set up properly, the telephone subscriber can make a call to the radioserver and then to the required

radio subscriber or talkgroup using the information heard in the voice menu file.

Radioserver Call Number – number to call to the radioserver.

Voice Menu File – the audio file which will be played to the telephone subscriber. The sampling frequency of the

audio file must be 8000 Hz.

Dial Extension Timeout – period in seconds when the caller can dial the ID of the radio subscriber or talkgroup

after listening to the voice menu file. If the caller has not dialed the ID before the time is out, the call will be

dropped.

Here is the list of steps to make a call using voice menu:

1. Dial your PBX number.

2. Dial the radioserver call number.

3. Dial * to turn on DTMF mode on the telephone (not obligatory, depends on the telephone parameters).

4. Dial the private or group call mask, and then the radio subscriber or talkgroup ID.

5. Dial #.

Example:

The radio subscriber ID: 120.

The PBX number: 9649.

The radioserver call number: 10.

The private call mask: 1.

The telephone subscriber will call: 9649 10 (*) 1 120 #.

Outgoing Calls

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 57

Allow Calls to Default VoIP Gateway – if enabled, radio subscriber calls to telephone subscribers are made

automatically, using all the data given, such as IP address of the automatic exchange, Source and Destination

masks, Dialing Rules. If the option is not selected, radio subscribers will need to enter the IP address and the

full number of the telephone subscriber to make a call.

IP address – IP address of the automatic exchange.

Source mask – must correspond to the source mask specified in the automatic exchange. It includes only

figures, for example, 32%15, where % is the number of the radio subscriber.

Destination mask – contains only figures, for example, 32%15, where % is the dialed telephone number. It is

used to speed up dialing of the telephone number.

TMS prefix is used for making a call to a telephone subscriber with the help of a text message sent from a radio.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 58

TMS Prefix can contain any available symbol on the radio keyboard. Figures following the specified prefix are

regarded as the telephone subscriber's number.

Outgoing Calls Authentication – the setting includes parameters required for outgoing call authentication. If

Realm is left blank, the specified user name and password are used in response to any authentication request

from the called party. Otherwise, Realm is checked whether it corresponds to the requesting user name and

password. If it matches, user name and password are sent. If not, the authentication is failed immediately.

Realm – if the value is set, SmartPTT Radioserver responds to authentication requests with the matching Realm

value. If the value is not set, SmartPTT Radioserver sends user name and password given in response to any

authentication request.

Username – user name used for authentication.

Password – password used for authentication.

Caller name at private calls – name of the radio subscriber that will be shown to the telephone subscriber. The

percent symbol (%) will be replaced automatically by the radio number.

Caller name at group calls – name of the talkgroup that will be shown to the telephone subscriber. The percent

symbol (%) will be replaced automatically by the talkgroup number.

Talk permit tone for phone subscribers – if enabled, the phone subscriber will hear a special tone prompting to

start speaking.

Bridging

SmartPTT bridging service allows joining various network systems into a single radio network. The bridging service

is implemented in the scope of SmartPTT PLUS Radioserver and provides intelligent means of redirecting voice

and data streams among different network systems.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 59

To activate the Bridging service, click Bridging in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. In the

opened window select the Active check box.

Multigroups

MultiGroups are used to organize dynamic routing of group calls between channels and different network systems.

Routing of group calls can be global or limited to predefined channels. Configuration of MultiGroups does not

require any bridging settings on SmartPTT Dispatcher, but Bridging must be enabled in SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator. If it is not activated, MultiGroups settings will be disabled.

To create multigroups, go to Bridging and click Multigroups.

To add a new multigroup, click Add. Then open its settings by selecting it in the settings tree.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 60

Name – name of the multigroup.

Talkgroup ID – the ID of the talkgroup whose calls are to be routed.

Subscribers IDs – radio IDs of the radio subscribers who will be included in the multigroup.

Use all channels – select this option if you want the group call to be routed globally.

How it works: If a multigroup is created for a talkgroup, and a group call is made to this talkgroup, SmartPTT

starts to look for all the talkgroups with this ID. Then SmartPTT checks if these groups have radio subscribers that

were defined in the multigroup settings. The group call will be routed only to the talkgroups that include at least

one of these radio subscribers.

Use selected channels – select this option if you want the group call to be routed within selected channels.

Note: When you add, change or delete a multigroup, it is not necessary to restart the radioserver. Click Apply to

activate the multigroups.

Voice Notifications

The main purpose of the voice notification functionality is to warn talkgroups about the fire or other emergency and

to manage evacuation. However, in normal mode voice notifications can be used to transmit ordinary

announcements.

216000.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 62

Select channels of the hardware or/and virtual control stations in the Channels area (All Call or Group Call) that

play the voice notification (after it was run in SmartPTT Dispatcher).

Note: Playing voice notification on the channel corresponds to an outgoing call of SmartPTT Radioserver and fully

occupies the selected channel. Thus, each control station (hardware or virtual) can have only one call type to be

used for playing voice notifications on the channel – an all call or a group call.

To delete the voice notification profile, right-click on the selected profile and click Delete.

Web Service

This additional module expands SmartPTT bounds. It allows the dispatchers to do their job without the desktop

SmartPTT Dispatcher. The web version of SmartPTT Dispatcher was designed specifically to provide users with

the functionality of the desktop version, but without the restrictions of desktop applications. Currently the web

version provides the following functionality:

Displaying radio subscribers on Google Map

Sending TMS messages to and from radio subscribers

Getting ARS and GPS data

Blocking and unblocking radios


Install the web client and connect it to SmartPTT Radioserver by selecting the Active check box in the Web

Service window in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator.

Monitoring

5 Tone Signaling – settings for 5 Tone signaling, also known as SelectV.

SelectV is used in the analog networks to arrange selective calls. As a result, the analog channel provides

additional services other than all call. For example, group and private calls to the radio, blocking or unblocking the

radio, checking the radio presence on the channel.

Note: The current version of SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator supports SelectV signaling for MOTOTRBO DM

46xx Series radios and DP 46xx, DP 48xx Series radios used as control stations.

Note: Make sure that control stations and radios operating on the analog channel are configured properly in

MOTOTRBO CPS.

Selective call is based on subscriber addressing, i.e., on assigning IDs to subscribers. At the beginning of each

session the sound signals of different frequencies are transmitted and received by the radio. Such signals are

called telegrams. Each telegram contains from one to three sequences. Every sequence may include up to 12

tones. The telegram formed in this way may include the calling subscriber or talkgroup address, the radio ID, a

status message or a command. The radio receives all signals, but handles only its telegrams, i.e., telegrams

addressed to this radio.

Note: You can specify one or several identifiers (CAI + Radio ID or IP, MDC ID or 5 Tone ID) as a radio ID in

SmartPTT Dispatcher in the Properties window. If the radio is used on the analog channel only, enter 5 Tone ID

or MDC ID; the CAI and Radio ID or IP fields must be left empty.

System – 5 Tone signaling system. Parameters in this section allow you to match the outgoing command from

SmartPTT Radioserver and the telegram number.

Note: When decoded, telegrams are verified if the telegram sequences correspond to one of the definitions, and

then the command of this definition is applied. To configure the command definition, use MOTOTRBO CPS

(Decoder > Definitions, the Matching Encode Telegram field).

To create a 5 Tone signaling system in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, click Add. The several signaling

systems can be added for each control station. To change the control station signaling system, select the

required value from the list.

To delete the selected 5 Tone signaling system, click Delete.

Voice Call – the telegram number conforming to the private or group voice calls.

Silent Interrogate – the telegram number which corresponds to the check command of the radio presence on

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 71

the network without notifying the subscriber.

Stun – the telegram number which stands for sending the Block command to the radio.

Unstun – the telegram number which stands for sending the Unblock command to the radio.

Emergency Off – when the radio receives the telegram number while in an emergency mode, the radio terminates

the emergency mode.

PTT Dekey – when the radio receives the telegram number, the radio stops the current call session.

When the telegram encoding parameters are set, it is required to assign the signaling system for the channel (see

the Channels tab).

If necessary, the control station can be disabled from the connection list. To do this, clear the Active check box.

To delete the control station, right-click Control Stations entry in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver

Configurator and click Delete.

1.1.5 Connect Plus


SmartPTT PLUS supports Connect Plus multi-site trunking system, which starting from version 8.5 can be used

not only for ARS, TMS and GPS functionality, but also for voice communication between the dispatcher and radio

subscribers.

Connect Plus network can include up to 15 repeaters (29 channels + 1 control channel) on each site. Each site

must have at least one XRC Controller. It is the core of the Connect Plus network and its presence on each site is

obligatory. The XRC Controller provides central call processing and real-time resource management for

MOTOTRBO Connect Plus digital trunking systems. There can be two XRC Controllers per site if one of them

serves as backup to the primary XRC. The secondary controller provides backup capability, but it does not

increase the number of repeaters and calls that can be managed per site.

XRT Gateways are required for voice communication only. MOTOTRBO Connect Plus multi-site trunking network

provides extended load capacity and provides digital communication to as many as 2,900 users per site.

When using Connect Plus network, SmartPTT Radioserver plays the role of a virtual repeater.

The Connect Plus network configuration includes the following stages:

1. Adding new network and its basic configuration.

2. Setting up XRC Controller configurations.

3. Setting up talkgroups for group messages.

4. Setting up XRT Gateway parameters for voice communication.

5. Adding talk paths for voice calls.

(Profiles) and define a unique identifier for each operator. Radio ID set in this window must correspond to the

Console User ID field in the XRT Gateway settings.

Interface – IP address of the virtual repeater, i.e. SmartPTT Radioserver. Specify the IP address of the PC where

the radioserver is installed.

UDP Start Port – this is the starting port number for local UDP ports that will be used by SmartPTT Radioserver

for talk paths. It is recommended to use the default value of 19000. If the created Connect Plus network should not

transmit voice packets, this field can be ignored.

XRC Controller

The XRC Controller is necessary for transmitting registration and de-registration, GPS data, text messages. The

XRC Controller is also required for making private calls, because without it, radios will be regarded as offline, and

the dispatcher won't be able to make private calls.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide

The next step is to add talk paths. They are necessary for voice communication. For each talkgroup or/and

dispatcher add a talk path. This can be done in the Talk Paths window. Group IDs should match the IDs set in

the Group ID field in the XRT Gateway settings (see above). If the Group ID field is empty in the XRT Gateway

settings, the user should have permission for any Group Talk Path that it validly registers with the XRT 9000.

Dispatcher ID should match the ID set in the Console User ID in the XRT Gateway settings (see above).

Note: When adding talk paths make sure that talk paths with the same identifiers are specified in the XRT

Gateway settings.

Control Stations

Control stations provide voice communication like the XRT Gateway. You can use control stations instead of the

XRT Gateway or together with it to increase the number of talkpaths. One control station can be reserved for one

group call or dispatcher call only.

interfaces select a different IP address.

Note: If two or more control stations are connected to the computer, one of the first three octets of the IP address

must be unique for each control station.

Radio ID – the unique identifier of the control station used for communication. This Radio ID must match Radio

ID set in the settings of the control station. If the control station is used for dispatcher calls, and there are more

than one operator in the system, Radio ID must match the ID set in the profile of the operator for whom the

control station is reserved (see Profiles).

Reserved for – allows you to define how the control station is to be used. It can be used for private calls

(Dispatcher) or for group calls (Talkpath). You can use one control station per one dispatcher or per one

talkpath. To allow group calls, select Group, and enter the ID of the talkgroup and its name. To allow private calls

to and from the dispatcher, select Dispatcher.

Network ID – unique ID of the network. The network ID must not match any ID of the other SmartPTT Radioserver

networks.

Peer ID – unique ID of the radioserver in the network. This ID must not match any of the other repeater IDs in this

network.

Interface – local interface of the radioserver. The radioserver plays the role of a software peer.

Port – port number of the radioserver. It should differ from the corresponding ports in other networks.

Master repeater address (host:port) – IP address and port number of the network Master repeater.

Click Test to check connection between the radioserver and the Master repeater.

Authentication Key – repeater authorization key (to be equal to the Authentication key in the repeater settings

in MOTOTRBO CPS).

Voice transmission can be carried out in two ways: via repeaters and via control stations.To transmit voice via

control stations, configure control station parameters and profiles for making private calls. To transmit voice via

repeaters, configure virtual control station channels and talkgroups of the channel. The number of channels

depends on the network type. To transmit CSBK commands use control stations for voice transfer.

To transmit data and monitoring data select the corresponding check boxes.

Group call hang time – time during which the repeater reserves the channel for a group call after the end of

transmission. During the timeout, only the participants of the talkgroup can transmit.

Private call hang time – time during which the repeater reserves the channel for a private call after the end of

transmission. During the timeout, only the participants of the private call can transmit.

Max number of telephone calls – sets the limit on the number of simultaneous telephone calls per system.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 92

When selecting Link ed Capacity Plus network with voice via repeaters, the new section (Sites) appears in the

settings tree:

Max number of telephone calls – sets the limit on the number of simultaneous telephone calls per site.

Priority – priorities should be set on the basis of the radioserver proximity to the site. The closer the radioserver

to the site, the higher priority it should have. Thus, you will be able to reduce delay in data transmission.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 93

The following example shows sites' location in respect to the radioserver, and talkgroups' distribution on the sites.

Here, talkgroups 3, 4, 6 are assigned to Site 1; talkgroups 2, 4, 5, 6 – to Site 2; talkgroups 1, 4, and 5 – to Site 3.

The Talkgroups tab in repeater MOTOTRBO CPS settings allows you to configure group calls as wide area calls

on specific sites.

By default, the repeater sends data to Site 1. Then, data goes from Site 1 to other sites. So, if you call to

talkgroup 4, the total time delay will be 130 ms.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 94

Setting up the site priorities so that sites with less time delay are associated with a higher priority allows sending

data to the nearest site, from which it is distributed to other sites. Ultimately, the total time delay in case of

talkgroup 4 reduces up to 70 ms.

If connection with the site of the highest priority fails, the radioserver tries to work through the site of lower

priority.

To assign site priority, drag the site name to the desired location or use arrows on the right to the table.

Note: Talkgroup distribution data is provided by the Talkgroups table on each site (repeater settings in

MOTOTRBO CPS).

When selecting IP Site Connect with voice via repeaters, the Local Slots table appears. Local slots allow multiple

communications at one time. To add a local slot, click the Add button above the table.

Name – name of a local slot, which will be displayed in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator and SmartPTT

Dispatcher.

Peer ID – the identifier of a repeater.

Slot – selection between slots (Slot 1 or Slot 2).

How to Configure NAI Talkgroups

To configure slot groups, click Talkgroups in the setting tree of SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator.

Note: The configuration process of the virtual control station talkgroups for NAI IP Site Connect or Capacity Plus

networks is absolutely similar to the configuration of MOTOTRBO control station talkgroups.

For Link ed Capacity Plus network type, parameters of wide area and local talkgroups are set in the Control

Station Talkgroups window. All the configured talkgroups are displayed in SmartPTT Dispatcher. For more

information about wide area and local groups of Linked Capacity Plus network see Motorola System Planer.

Wide area talkgroup calls are available to the subscribers that are in the coverage area of sites designated in

MOTOTRBO CPS for this talkgroup. Select check boxes in the required columns of the Talkgroups tab in the

repeater MOTOTRBO CPS settings. Each column corresponds to the site where the talkgroup is available for a

call.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 100

In order to display wide area talkgroups in SmartPTT Dispatcher, add necessary talkgroups in SmartPTT

Radioserver Configurator, define talkgroup identifiers that correspond to the identifiers of the wide area talkgroups

in the repeater MOTOTRBO CPS settings and select Wide in the Site Number field.

The talkgroups that are not specified in the repeater MOTOTRBO CPS settings are considered as local. The local

talkgroup call does not go beyond the site where the call is initiated.

Add the required local talkgroups in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, define identifiers for them and select site

number from the list in the Site Number field.

Note: Make sure that identifiers of wide area and local talkgroups do not match.

It is important to specify all talkgroups supported by the system in SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator. Otherwise,

the operator can't initiate a call to such a talkgroup until the talkgroup member has made a group call to the

operator.

To add the All Call, click All Calls. In Link ed Capacity Plus networks, you can add a wide All Call and a local All

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide

that Site Number is set to Wide. To add an All Call limited to one site, click All Calls, and in the Site Number

column select the site number where the All Call will be heard. Please note, that you do not need any IDs for local

All Calls. Only dispatchers can initiate the local All Call from the dispatch console.

Note: Local All Calls operate within one site in networks where voice transmission is carried out via a repeater. In

hybrid networks, where voice transmission is carried out via a control station, a local All Call operates as the

global All Call.

How to Configure Control Stations

To transmit voice packets over control station, you need to configure its settings. Control station settings become

available, when you select voice packet transmission over control stations, not repeaters.

Radioserver 110

Remote Sock et is used when you want to connect more than one network such as Capacity Plus or Linked

Capacity Plus to SmartPTT Radioserver. To ensure proper functioning of all connected networks (voice and/or data

transmission), each network requires separate MNIS and DDMS services set up and running. At the same time,

multiple MNIS and DDMS can't be installed on one PC. To work around this problem, you should install and

configure MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility, MOTOTRBO DDMS Administrative Client

and MNIS Relay applications on multiple PCs. The number of PCs depends on the number of networks (Capacity

Plus or Linked Capacity Plus) connected to SmartPTT Radioserver. Thus, the transmission of voice data from

repeaters to SmartPTT Radioserver is carried out directly, and data transfer – via PC with MNIS Relay and the

MNIS and DDMS service applications.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 111

In SmartPTT Radioserver Configurator, in the Socket Type field, select Remote Sock et. At that, the Interface

field will turn into MNIS Relay Address.

4. It is recommended to clear the Data Call Confirmed field in the Advanced section and to specify the

identifier in the MNIS LE ID field explicitly.

DDMS operation is closely connected to MNIS for data exchange (MNIS serves as DDMS Watcher). DDMS

filteres the registration service packets (ARS), received by the repeater, and information on the radio presence in

the network is sent to all systems for further processing. Therefore, when you configure DDMS settings, make

sure that:

a) The PortWatcher field in MOTOTRBO DDMS Administrative Client matches the WatcherPort field in

MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility settings (Advanced > Network).

b) The PORT SU field (Interfaces > ARS Settings) in MOTOTRBO DDMS Administrative Client matches

the ARS UDP Port field in MOTOTRBO Network Interface Service Configuration Utility (Advanced >

Networks).

blocked, calls going in the opposite direction are not affected.

1.1.9 SmartPTT Radioservers


SmartPTT Bridging service allows joining two radioservers into a single radio network with the help of intelligent

means of patching for voice and data streams. Thus, radio subscribers or talkgroups under control of one

radioserver become available for another radioserver for voice call and data packet transmissions.

Note: Currently, bridging service between two radioservers is supported with all network topologies, except for

topologies with control stations.

SmartPTT Bridging service allows joining radio networks, managed by two different radioservers, to cover

distributed regions. The important advantages of the network are dynamic redirection of private and group calls and

data packets from one radioserver to another, and short voice delay (60 ms).

How to Configure SmartPTT Radioservers


Configuration of bridging service between two radioservers includes:

1. Adding an external radioserver:

basic configuration of the external radioserver

control station configuration of the external radioserver

talkgroup configuration

2. Activating bridging service

3. Configuring bridging settings in SmartPTT Dispatcher

These actions are required for both joined radioservers in the system.

1.1.11 Security Settings


SmartPTT supports three types of privacy mechanisms – Basic, Enhanced, and Advanced Encryption Standard

(AES). Both Basic and Enhanced Privacy utilize Motorola proprietary algorithms and therefore are not

interoperable with other vendor’s privacy offerings. The main differences between Basic and Enhanced Privacy are

that the Enhanced Privacy provides higher level of protection by means of 40-bit key length. Enhanced Privacy

supports multiple keys in a radio compared to one key in the case of Basic Privacy.

The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a specification for the encryption of electronic data established by

the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The AES feature supports 256-bit key length,

unlike Enhanced Privacy. Similar to Enhanced Privacy, the AES also supports multiple keys. For AES encryption

a special license is required.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 156

The Security Settings window allows you to specify the encryption keys for incoming and outgoing traffic on the

digital channel.

Copy: Copy encryption settings of the channel to the clipboard.

Paste: Paste encryption settings of the channel from the clipboard.

Basic Privacy
Key: A key for the basic encryption mode. The value ranges from 1 to 255. Make sure that Key set in SmartPTT

Radioserver Configurator matches Basic Privacy Key set in radio settings in MOTOTRBO CPS.

If basic encryption keys of receiving and transmitting side do not match, the receiving side hears only a distorted

voice.

key you want to edit and type the new value. To delete a key, select the key from the list and click Remove.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 158

Key ID and Key Value must match the values set in the radio settings in MOTOTRBO CPS. If the values in the

Key ID fields are the same, but the values ?


in the Key Value fields do not match, the receiving side hears only a

distorted voice. If the key identifier of the receiving side does not coincide with one of the key identifiers in the list

of the transmitting side, then transfer to the receiving party will not be heard.

AES
To add an AES privacy key for incoming traffic, click Add. To edit the key, click the cell that contains the key you

want to edit and type the new value. To delete a key, select the key from the list and click Remove.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide

Key ID and Key Value must match the values set in the radio settings in MOTOTRBO CPS and in MNIS

Configuration Utility. If the values in the Key ID fields are the same, but the values ?
in the Key Value fields do not

match, the receiving side hears only a distorted voice. If the key identifier of the receiving side does not coincide

with one of the key identifiers in the list of the transmitting side, then transfer to the receiving party will not be

heard.

TX Privacy
Type: Allows you to select encryption mode for outgoing traffic on the side of SmartPTT Dispatcher.

If No is set, radioserver does not support outbound traffic encryption.

If Basic is set, the key specified in the Key field in the Basic Privacy section is used for encryption of outgoing

traffic.

SmartPTT PLUS 9.0 Radioserver Configurator User Guide


Radioserver 160

If Enhanced is set, specify the Key ID value from the Enhanced Privacy table, which will be used to encrypt

outbound traffic.

Select AES (Legacy Key) or AES (Symmetric Key), with the required Key ID, if you want to use AES (Legacy

Key) or AES (Symmetric Key) for outgoing traffic. If TX Privacy is not set, and you have AES encryption for

incoming traffic, AES (Symmetric Key) will be used for incoming traffic by default.

AES (Legacy Key) – AES encryption (Motorola Solutions implementation, MOTOTRBO firmware earlier than

R2.4).

AES (Symmetric Key) – AES encryption (DMR-compliant implementation, MOTOTRBO firmware R2.4 and later).

1.2 Profiles

Note: When adding allowed radios make sure that the same radios are specified in Radioserver > Limit Radios

to Service. Otherwise, the radios not registered in both lists will be regarded as unallowed.

Upwards and downwards arrows are used for changing the order of head elements in the list. This order will be

applied in SmartPTT Dispatcher, if this profile is used.

In the central list you can select all the elements which are to be controlled by the operator with this profile. If

there are more than one operator on the same channel, set the unique ID for each operator. This will allow radio

subscribers to make private calls to particular operators, dialing the specified ID. If dispatchers have the same ID,

they will hear each other's private calls, even if Private calls is not selected.

In Capacity Plus and Linked Capacity Plus configurations based on NAI protocol, when using control stations

reserved for dispatcher private calls, a new parameter Reserved Control Station appears and the ID value

matches the reserved control station ID automatically:

Private calls: If enabled, it allows the dispatcher to initiate private calls to radio and telephone subscribers, and

dispatchers.

Listening to private calls between subscribers: If enabled, it allows the dispatcher to hear private calls made

from radio subscribers to other radio subscribers, dispatchers or telephone subscribers and vice versa, read their

messages. This feature is available for networks with direct connection to repeater, e.g., IP Site Connect,
